Commercialization of universities

Other Names:
Part-time academic consultants
University competition in the private consulting sector

The commercialization of university research, and the financial and political encouragement accorded to research that can presented as bearing immediate and calculable relevance to desired economic goals, have worked to alter significantly the working models of intellectual enquiry. There is every indication that this period of restructuring and reorienting in higher education and research is only part way through; it is hard to imagine it ever being fully reversed.
